Hi guys, this is my first post, but I'd like to know if there are existing aftermarket, ignition upgrades for my 1990 V8. It's the 3.6L model, with the two distributors, and I don't want to spend $500+ for the replacement wires. I heard that there is a way, but did not have a pen handy to write down the info I was given. I do remember the guy saying that it would increase the fuel economy alot too, if it was converted to distributorless ignition. Please verify/clarify if true.

Shop around for cheaper replacement wire.
To do a distributorless system you will have to replace the distributor with some sort of cam indexing system, in order for the ECU to know which cylinder to fire, and use a coil pack like they do in the new A8 system. The cost will be more than $500, so if you're looking for a cheap system then replace the existing ignition wire would be the most cost effective. BTW you will still need ignition wire to fire the spark plugs even in a distributorless system.

Hey, thanks. I knew there had to be a catch.
